The Eerie Towers Of Shivering Sands
If you go to Shoeburyness East Beach on a clear, cloudless day you can see some towers in the far distance.
They are the towers of Shivering Sands – built between 1942 and 1943 as gun platforms against German bombers. So they may well have protected your family’s home during World War 2.
Their history after the war includes a colliding ship, pirate radio and a fatal shooting.
